Thursday 4 July
Bulayu House, North Parramatta, NSW
10am to 4pm
A Rise Retreat is an invitation to stop the madness and the noise, for a moment.
It is an invitation to slow down, quieten the spirit, and tune into the still, small voice of God, whispering to us by name, reminding us who we are and who God is.
On a Rise Retreat, you will have the chance to connect with others as much or as little as you want, and engage in new and ancient spiritual practices that are easeful, and nourishing.
If you long for unforced rhythms of grace in your life, come and join us for a time of spiritual refreshment.
Come and be with Jesus. He will help you recover your life, your heart, your fire.
Your Full Day Retreat Includes
Reflect on your own experience of God and deepen your spiritual walk through new and familiar spiritual practices.
Retreat with intentional time of stillness before God.
Release, receive and respond to God’s presence in your life and Christ’s unending love for you.
You will be guided in a Christ Centred Meditation and be invited to explore a variety of Rise Rest Stops. Our Rise Rest Stops include spaces for art, craft, resting, writing or simply being.
We encourage you to spend time with God in the moments where you feel joy and peace.
We encourage you to experience a deeper relationship with God in this place.
Rise Retreats will be facilitated by an experienced team. These women will create a space that is comfortable and safe. They will navigate the group through times of sharing in community and give the space for complete YOU time.
We have teamed with local producers and caterers to bring you a delicious, healthy and seasonal morning tea, lunch and afternoon menu.
A relaxed time of feasting around the table is part of each Rise Retreat – you will be nourished with a wholesome spread.

Transparent, warm, efficient, and friendly, Lauren enjoys planning and hosting each retreat to ensure the needs of all participants are catered to, and that the event delivers the kind of soul-stirring, restorative experience which she herself originally sought to find.
Lauren Harkness created Rise Retreats out of her passion for wellness of body and mind and a desire to create intentional time away for women to connect with God and themselves through community and mindfulness.
